Nice Course but Pushy Rangers

My first visit to this course was with my adult daughter. We were paired with two other players to complete a foursome. After finishing the first hole, my daughter and I were asked to pick up the pace when we spent most of the first hole waiting on someone else in the group yet the other two did not receive this message. This left a sour taste in our mouths when we were just starting off our round. On the 2nd hole the same ranger approached us to let us know we had two open holes ahead, great. At the beginning of the 4th hole the same ranger came by to split the group up to speed up pace. I do not appreciate being rushed nor given status updates on every hole when I’m trying to enjoy the round. My daughter and I are experienced golfers but it felt like he was targeting her above everyone else. She mentioned she felt like she was being punished for not being able to keep up with a player who reached the green in two swings on a par 4 and said if came by a fourth time she wanted to leave the course. Are ladies being held to a different standard? It was not her fault she was playing with four men. We have played many courses together in our travels and we have never encountered such a pushy ranger. After exchanging some words with the ranger about his aggressiveness we were finally able to enjoy the rest of our round and might consider playing here again.

Enjoyable Course but Dreadful Pace of Play

First time playing here in over 10 years. Was reminded how much I enjoyed the course. Had way too much time to look around as the pace of play was painfully slow. I left after eight holes because it had already taken 2.5 hours to play the eight holes and #9 was going to be the slowest hole yet.

In the future, I will look to play much earlier in the day before the slow play bogs things down.

Great course , great conditions but 5hrs and 20 mins was way too long!

It was a very busy Sun afternoon at Panther Lake which lead to an extremely long round. However, the course is beautiful, in great shape and the practice facilities are outstanding. Looking forward to playing Crooked Cat later this week.

Greens were Seeded

The course is immaculate as always, HOWEVER, the greens on the Panther Lake course were over seeded so your approach would not hold and it was annoying to putt on. If going to Orange County, play the Crooked Cat instead.... I was told after our round that it had not been seeded yet, only Panther Lake. Amazing facility, top notch, but wish I had known about the greens.

Slow play but not without reason

My only comment would be, if you have one course closed for a tournament that does not mean you should try and squeeze in extra rounds on the open course.
